The 40th anniversary of the moon landing was celebrated recently and it made me think of how cool it would have been to be one of those pioneering astronauts that first set foot on lunar soil all those years ago. Well, Google must have been listening to my thoughts (I hear they do that now and again), because Google Earth can now take you to the moon in the comfort of your own home!
You can look at landing sites, craters and other points of interest, plus you can get all the cool info that goes along with it, just like Google Earth! Look closely and you can even see a strip of the land that has been done in Google’s new high-resolution style! It’s so detailed!
Never messed around with Google Earth? It’s a great toy, just to experiment with, explore and learn from. Type in “Google Earth” in your favorite search engine and give it a spin!
